My First YouTube Videos

Okay…I consider myself a pretty savvy computer user, but posting to YouTube was probably one of the most time consuming things I have done in a long time.  After about 7 hours of work, I have 3 subpar videos to show for it.  Now, to be fair some of the problem was not possessing the exact proper technology.  First off we are NOT a video family; sure, we have short clips of the kids here or there, but I remember viewing hours and hours of torturous home videos as a child enough to know that video is not the primary way I would like to preserve family memories.  That being said, my only recording options are my Canon Sure Shot or my iphone…I chose the iphone.  Next was the video orientation.  You can see the results. That’s all I have to say about that. Then one of my videos was over 15 minutes, presenting yet another problem.  The list goes on and on.  But I did push forward and although they are nowhere near perfect, I do have my first 3 YouTube gems.  Time will tell whether I decide to become a serious YouTuber or if the work outweighs the benefits…
